I am always inspired by my surroundings. I see beauty in so many things, beauty which I try to recapture in my paintings. My travels have always provided me with an array of subject matter and since moving to Florida, my paintings reflect my Floridian surroundings. Painting gives me an opportunity to express myself and it is very gratifying when my viewers are enjoying my work. This portfolio shows a few of my pieces.
